The Untitled Little Rock Nine Project is based on the best-selling memoir A Mighty Long Way: My Journey to Justice at Little Rock Central High by Carlotta Walls LaNier, the youngest member of The Little Rock Nine and the first African American female to graduate from the integrated school.
In 1957, after the landmark Supreme Court decision of Brown v. Board of Education, 14 year-old Carlotta Walls is among the first black students to attend the all-white Central High in Little Rock, Arkansas. She walks into an unexpectedly violent struggle against integration, which suddenly turns her and the other black students into civil rights icons. For Carlotta - a teenager at the center of a cataclysmic moment in American history - graduating with her diploma means risking her life. But Carlotta searches for a way to keep her humanity intact at school and beyond, losing then regaining her selfhood in a coming of age leavened by humor, family, friendship, and solidarity.
